Sri Lankans Unite to Stop the Spread of Hate and Violence – CBC News

COLOMBO – Two months after Sri Lanka’s Easter Sunday bombings, Sri Lankans gathered at Colombo’s central park. They held a moment of silence before they denounced the country’s political leaders for spreading hate and communal violence.

Rise Up Sri Lanka was held Saturday at Colombo’s Galle Face Green to commemorate the two month anniversary of the attacks that claimed the lives of 258 people. This story aired on CBC News Friday, June 21, 2019.
